MLWGS Students Named Wyndham B. Blanton Scholars

Charles Condro '11 and Stephen Roach '12 were named 2010 Wyndham B. Blanton Scholars by the Virginia Historical Society. They attended the Blanton Scholars Forum last July where they worked with members of the VHS and 11 other Blanton Scholars from across Virginia, learning about historical research. The scholars helped create and produce videos for the exhibit "The Story of Virginia: an American Experience." They also submitted blogs which will be posted on the Virginia Historical Society website.
On October 19 Charles and Stephen joined the other Blanton Scholars as honored guests at the J. Harvie Wilkinson, Jr Lecture of the Virginia Historical Society. Sandra Day O'Connor was the Guest Speaker. She met personally with the scholars and gave each student an autographed copy of her book "The Majesty of the Law."
